AUBURN – The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society has begun collecting submissions for its annual Feline Foto Contest, celebrating the special cats in the community.

Judging will be held as part of the Strutt Your Mutt Dog Walk and Pet Festival on Saturday, May 22, at Railroad Park in Lewiston. Photos must be received by May 14.

Photos will be judged in four categories: Best All-Around, Best Dressed, Funniest and Cutest. Prizes include a cat gift basket, donated by the Perfect Basket, a one-year subscription to Cat Fancy magazine and others.

Winners will be featured in the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society’s newsletter and posted on the Web site.

Each contest submission requires a $5 donation and the following information printed on the back of each photo: cat’s name, owner’s name, address and phone number.
